Quentin Blake: The Only Way to Travel
Quentin Blake: The Only Way to Travel

Opening on 14 June is the largest UK public gallery exhibition of Sir Quentin Blake's work to date.

The Only Way to Travel, which will include 100 works by the well-known artist and illustrator, will take visitors on a journey through modern life and the creative mind. Featuring extraordinary beasts, machines and bizarre narrative scenes, Blake will explore themes of loneliness, depression and people dislocated from their homes, as well as energy and enthusiasm for life.

Keep your eyes peeled for a special behind the scenes look at the exhibition! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the latest exhibition updates.

Jean Cooke - Delight in the Thing Seen opens next Wednesday  
Jean Cooke - Delight in the Thing Seen opens next Wednesday

Jean Cooke RA (1927-2008) was an artist with a profoundly personal view of the world who found joy and inspiration in the everyday. 

This two room exhibition celebrates Cooke’s unique, quirky, lyrical vision, drawing together works that explore the different aspects of her artistic practice.

When asked why she painted, Cooke replied: ‘It is some sort of love, some sort of devotion. More nun-like than a devouring of life, but still an untiring use of eyes and mind to concoct images... a continuous delight in the thing seen.’

Cooke was the first wife of the artist John Bratby, whose work was on display at Jerwood Gallery last year.

Kath Thompson: Yesterday and Tomorrow  
Kath Thompson: Yesterday and Tomorrow

Born in London in 1948, Kath Thompson studied at Chelsea School of Art, and completed a degree in philosophy at the University of London. Her bold, brightly coloured paintings take inspiration from the history of painting, modern global politics, and the world that she sees around her. 

This exhibition features a mixture of new work and paintings from the past decade, presenting an overview of the recent practice of this extraordinary artist. 

When asked what inspires her paintings, Thompson said: ‘My work is about things, people and places in the world. I am influenced by painting from the ancient past as well as the present. Essentially it’s the visual world that excites my imagination.' 

Opens 10 June 2017
